The benefits of vinyl outdoor storage sheds include the fact that these sheds are lightweight enough for owners to transport them easily in personal vehicles, yet generally sturdy enough to withstand wind. Another benefit is that sealed vinyl sheds effectively protect tools and materials from damage due to precipitation and inclement weather.
Multiple distributors and retailers of vinyl outdoor storage sheds exist, and each presents a specific advantage to the consumer. For instance, Sam's Club offers generally low prices for vinyl garden sheds ideal for lawnmowers and tools, but carries a relatively small selection of prefabricated shed products. Additionally, these sheds tend to be small. Sam's Club carries Lifetime, Rubbermaid, Bellevue, Suncast and Infinity brand vinyl sheds.
Sears generally offers its customers access to larger vinyl storage sheds, making them ideal for individuals who need to store larger gardening items or create outdoor workshops. Some of these sheds contain windows, raised platforms, wooden floors and ventilation systems. Outdoor vinyl sheds available from Sears also frequently feature either easy-entry double doors or latched doors that provide additional security. These sheds typically encompass an area of less than 200 square feet, which prevents customers from having to obtain building permits for erecting them.
